Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has become the fifth player ever in the history of the NBA to score 30,000 career points.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard who, unimaginably, has spent half his life playing in the league, became the youngest to reach 30,000 at the age of 34 years and 104 days.
Bryant’s historic moment came just before halftime. He joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain with a one-handed floater in the lane over Robin Lopez. There were a few cheers, but the game wasn’t stopped. Before the second half started, the milestone was acknowledged and Bryant hugged his teammates and waved to the crowd.
